Talk:Madrigals, Libro 4 (Gesualdo, Carlo)

I've been in doubt how to transfer Vincent Carpentier's complete edition of the 4th book. The full scores are just ordinary vocal scores and the separate parts unchanged extracts with lyrics from the engraving source files. The clefs of the separate parts, however, have been selected in order to adapt to recorder consorts; hence their names.

Actually I started with grouping full scores and separate parts, but changed to the current setup as sort of analogy with the viol transcriptions. --Reccmo 16:37, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

What you did is fine for now. It would probably be even better if we changed the first tab to "Scores and Parts" and moved Carpentier's items there. What he did is certainly useable as a chorus score and parts. Modernizing the clefs doesn't automatically make it into an arrangement, so its present designation as such is arbitrary (though - as is often the case with music of this era - perfectly playable by recorders and other ensembles).

I've regrouped Vincent Carpentier's edition as I did with his editions of madrigals by Cipriano di Rore. After all I was involved quite a lot in the proof reading and layout of all Vincent's WIMA scores, incl. the extraction of the separate scores. So I know for sure that the only recorder adaptions in the separate parts is the selection of clefs; ie. adaption to the most used treble recorder notation --Reccmo 09:58, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
